just as with all government operations, they come in and make decisions for the workers and have never studied the actual concerns for the operations. They have fit everyone rules that do not always apply to everyone's business, but it is a way to fine and take big money, instead of trying to work with companies to make this a better working atmosphere. The gov. agency OSHA is best noted for giving ridiculous fines and of NO assistance to anyone except their cause and financial gain.Has there been a major source of injuries at the plant , then they have cause to be there, not to fine, but to discuss alternative solutions, but NO the money comes first and foremost as with current regulations in all gov. forms

typical government objective, always trying to get more taxpayer dollars from the public METROPARKS already have a levy, try living within their means and stop overspending.. All that has been decided is they need more money,, just not sure what it can all be spent on!

Typical government, wait for their studies. Fracking has been going on in TEXAS for years with little to NO problems,,everyone is screaming contaminating ground drinking water,,,, fracking occurs over 6000 ft underground in areas already surrounded by brine. Only corrupted disposal of the fracking solution is the problem around OHIO, and that is criminal, but the fracking process in not a health concern. Before those that speak in defiance of fracking,, maybe they should know something about it before they open their mouth,,,, best lesson to be taught to Bob Hagan

well said! Unless the oil companies have a tree that produces money, the taxes are just passed on to the consumer, in other words,, another tax hike! Lowering the state income tax and raising the oil tax was to bring in an extra $3B per year for the state of OHIO. Just remember, the final consumer funds this money, another hidden government cost, when was the last time the government did anything that saved you money. The workers of America pay over half of their wages in taxes and the government wants more.

Just what the people need, politicians like HAGAN trying to have authority to regulate anything. He screams fracking at an injection well problem, and he claims he knows the amount of waste being dumped when the investigators studying the site have not come up with the total figures yet. The pollution limits that the gov set up, water PH is an illegal dump if it comes straight out of the water tap that we all drink, and is put into a stream, not knowing the contaminants that were found so far, how could any determination be conclusive until the study is complete? But our local politicians are screaming for action, the problem is being worked on, try getting anything,, anywhere being completed with the government involved and you will see what " slow as a snails pace " really means!

The idea of the income tax rate hasn't been increased since 1988, remember this is an income tax.. EVERYTIME anyone, gets a raise, the city automatically gets their raise, Time to tighten the belts and get rid of the waste like everyone else has to do.

Sounds like more than "pulled over" for a bad back and walking funny, He wasn't pulled over when he was walking to the wedding "party". Guess would be that it is just another case where POLITICIANS have one set of laws to follow and the rest of us just have to keep paying fines mounted on any other piggy back collection methods that courts seem to pile on for everything just so they can waste the money as usual.

Let's look at facts: read this article about GM and not from ROMNEY it is from the news agency:http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/0...the article states that GM is investing $1B in Russia in the next 5 years. American taxpayers are the only reason GM is alive today, and this is how our taxpaying money is rewarded, by moving American jobs and work to RUSSIA!GM still owes the taxpayers $27B from bailout money,,, this article is not about GM, it is about how they respect the country coming together. Lordstown,, take note,, the first cruze plant was not here,,, it was bought and paid for by US manufacturing in St. Petersburg, Russia to the tune of $900m a year before Lordstown was awarded the rights to the cruze. check these facts! SO STOP crying foul when the auto makers go overseas,, it is their practice!

This idea of early location voting is a joke and waste of government resources. Early voting is not that hard without an ID also. It is called an absentee ballot. You request it, fill it in,and return it ,, period.Actual ballot voting should be done on 1 day and 1 day only, you must go to the assigned poll, and cast your ballot.Some complain about the showing an ID to prove who you are, those that complain have something to hide, Identification is required every where by this government , everyone knows that also, but want to not have to show it to vote, they say they cannot afford it, If its free, they should be able to afford it and if it costs money, the money they are spending to get it comes from the people anyway as in Government entitlement money. Am tired of those that claim everything is to stop OBAMA supporters, Believe me,if OBAMA was as good as some claim, there would be no reason for all of this voting confusion, AMERICAN PEOPLE LOVE A WINNER, and would back him every where, the problem exists because his presidency is a failure in most areas of this county and the entitlement and union backers love his methods for the special treatment of equality through SOCIALISM he is offering.

I fully understand what you are referring to about the traits of homosexuality and agree. Time to remove a president that supports such behavior and passes laws that allow this in our military without concerns of the majority of those that do not want to associate with such traits.Time to straighten out this country, GO ROMNEY!
